UPDATE // AUGUST 16: Banks released another strange and stunning visual for “Gemini Feed” off her upcoming album The Altar today (August 16). In the Philippa Price-directed clip, Banks is a tied up ice queen. In some scenes, she’s powerful, commanding and dominating. In others, the singer is submissive – hiding her face with a leather mask and bound by ropes on the floor.
The concept is bizarre, but it makes for a rousing video.

Banks’ highly-anticipated return is finally upon us.
Besides the sudden release of lead single “Fuck With Myself”, details of the follow-up to her acclaimed debut “Goddess” have been bare until now.
The R&B singer revealed her sophomore album is titled “The Altar” on Twitter accompanied with its stunning artwork, after it was posted online without her permission.
BANKS is seen barefaced and beautiful close-up on the black-and-white cover, starkly contrasting the red-lit, highly-saturated cover of her debut LP.
“The Altar” is out September 30. It’s time to get personal.
The singer also dropped her new single “Gemini Feed” which you can hear below:
